A GIRL covered her eyes as her male friends did hand brake turns in a car park, because she was scared they would crash.
Amy Wooley, of Vicars Cross, even told defendant Michael Wood to slow down after seeing him pull a stunt at Broxton car park, minutes before he lost control on the A41.
She told Chester Crown Court on Thursday: “His car stopped by me and Tony [Bentley-Roberts] and said ‘Did you see that Tony?’
“Tony said ‘Yes I can smell the burning tyres.’ I said to Woody ‘You’ve got to slow down or there’s going to be an accident. I don’t think he heard me to be honest, he wasn’t paying much attention to what I was saying.
“He appeared excited, he was full of adrenaline.”
Miss Wooley added: “I looked away when they were doing the hand brake turns because I was so worried I didn’t want to watch it.
“I tought they are going too fast. I didn’t know that was what we were going there to do.”
Miss Wooley said that while a passenger in Tony Bentley-Roberts’ car on the way from Hoole to Sainsbury’s car park she saw Michael Wood’s VW Golf go through a red light on Boughton.
Earlier, her friend Emma Cunningham, also of Vicars Cross, also said she saw Wood’s car go through a red light, but added that Citroen Saxo driver Chris Laidler also ran through the light.
Mr Laidler, who gave evidence on Wednesday, denies this and Miss Wooley said she could not recall Mr Laidler passing through the red light.
